After success from the last two years, the United States Eventing Association (USEA) is excited to announce that “The Event College at Rolex Kentucky,” presented by USEA’s Professional Horseman’s Council will be returning to the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event this year. The special event is designed to educate the general public on the sport of three-day eventing, and will be taking place Friday, Saturday, and Sunday during the competition.

Anyone can attend “The Event College” as a student and tuition is free!

Each day, the respective professor will meet the enrolled students at specified meeting points identified with “The Event College” flags, and hold roughly a fifteen-minute discussion on whichever phase of the competition is occurring, pointing out what the horses and riders are trying to achieve in the warm up areas versus the competition field. There will also be autograph sessions with top Event riders and time for Q&A.

Last year’s professors were highly esteemed event professionals Allison Springer, Sinead Halpin, Hawley Bennett-Awad, Jennifer McFall, Cathy Wieschhoff, Hannah Sue Burnett, Lauren Kieffer and Karen O’Connor, and this year’s speakers will be just as reputable; look for the announcement soon!

Stop by the USEA booth at Rolex to enroll in “The Event College” and receive a schedule with speaker biographies, meeting points and times.
